BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 (Which is a port of the console versions with all DLC included, plus some new arcade modes for the DLC characters) is out today for 3DS and PSP. Makes me think of just how many fighting games have come out over the past few months (DoA Dimensions, Arcana Heart 3, Mortal fucking Kombat), and more to come (Super SF4 Arcade Edition).

I hope they don't oversaturate the market again.

Super SFIV Arcade Edition DLC is now online. It's $15 on PSN and comes with a bundle of 10 Mega Man style 8-bit PSN avatars of various SF characters.

Actually, the DLC characters will continue to be DLC. If you bought them already, they will work in Ultimate MvC 3.

I have two achievements left in the first game.  One for playing someone with whatever high rank which should be easy...and then I have so many missions to do. I don't know if I'll ever get that one.  Oh and of course there is a get all achievements achievement...so I guess 3.

Will there be a reduced price DLC option for this ala SSF IV Arcade? Seems kind of weak to release a brand new disc upgrade less than a year later.

I'm not impressed, myself. Normally I'm a Capcom fanboy, but even I think this is too soon to release a newer iteration of the same game. If there isn't a cheaper DLC version made available, then I'll probably end up skipping out on this.

I'm sure this is pretty mundane for most of you but I wanted to share this. I got out my copy of Street Fighter Collection for the PS1. I started to play SSF2 Turbo and chose E Honda. I ran the gauntlet and beat Akuma. I am sure this is the first time I've done it.

They had Tekken Tag 2 playable at Evo, and it felt really solid even though it wasn't a finished build.  It's so much more fun than Tekken 6.  I'm really excited about it.

The Soul Calibur 5 demo also got my hopes up a little bit.  It looks like it plays a little faster than SC4, and it didn't look like it had critical finishes anymore, and these are both great things.  I'd be so happy if it didn't suck, but I'm not going to get my hopes up because Project Soul always lets me down.

I thought I saw a Thoth in my Tekken pool (14).  That wasn't the Thoth from this board, was it?

KoF came out today. I see Thoth playing but I suck way too much to challenge him or go online at the moment.

Joe and King (I think that's her name, the chick who is all kicks) are my two faves right now..

Broward, I am getting way too many wins (the 10 win streak eludes me, god damn it), but I will be sad when enough people figure out this game and I am exposed for the fraud that I am. In the meantime, I can't believe I actually want them to come out with the DLC characters already. EX Iori comes out Dec 7 for $5. I'm so happy the netcode is not trash.

Tekken Hybrid is cute.  The TTT2 demo is fun and the movie wasn't quite as terrible as I thought it would be.  It's so weak that TTT doesn't have online play, though.  Wtf Namco!

TTT also seems to have like noticeable lag on a couple stages where there's a lot going on in the background.  That's kind of embarassing given that it's a 12 year old game.  Come on Namco, get your shit together!

I still don't get why the fuck Mega Man and Pac Man are exclusives for Sony as those aren't Sony characters and would / should be on the 360 as well.

I mean, I don't really care all that much as I've never been a big fan of "guest characters" but still..

Capcom possibly signed a deal with Sony. I think MS does this all the time with Bethesda stuff. Either that or the 360 will be getting something else that hasn't been announced yet, or they will also get these two characters but after a set amount of time goes by (the deal could be that Sony has it first).

I know the talk that came out a week or so ago was that Ono was wanting to talk with Microsoft about using Chief and / or Marcus Fenix as 360 fighters but things couldn't get worked out in time. Of course, trying to get the rights to Marcus while Epic is in the midst of making Gears 3 and don't have the time to quality check how he's being used is kind of dumb on Ono's part.

Meh..I've already got a few teams picked out for SFxT and am looking forward to Soul Calibur 5 coming out on Tuesday.

Mega Man looks like hot, wet shit and probably can't learn other people's special moves.  Thumbs down.

Cole looks cool.  Pac Man would probably be fun to play.
Of course cage matches work.  If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage.

Apparently a lot of people are upset at this version of Mega Man. They wanted him in UMVC3 and Capcom answered with this version from the boxart of Mega Man 1. I have no problem with it, but I think it's kind of weird how Capcom seems to be trolling a good chunk of their fanbase.

I think it's goddamn hilarious. But he was going to be in Inafune's Mega Man Universe, so they put him in this instead. So it's trolling the fanbase, a tribute to Inafune, a dig, or maybe all three. They could've put him in UMvC3 but as far as the rest of Mega Man lately is concerned, such as the cancellations, there's a little bit of irrationality from fans.

Ono is the one taking the blame, from the fans at least, since it's "his" game. Inafune more or less said "you should use this one" according to Ono's tweets. At least, as far as my understanding of broken English goes: "I consulted with Mr.Megaman(his name is Mr.I…) about it 1 years ago.Its result! ;D"

SC5 seems pretty good after one day of play.  The online isn't GGPO good, but it's the best Namco's ever done.  I was playing on a wireless router, and other than some disconnects that were probably the fault of the router, the matches were never unplayable.
 
It feels slightly faster than SC4, although not as fast as the first three.  The super system is cool.  The supers have neat properties, like Mitsus sets up all kinds of crazy tech traps, without feeling broken.  Tying guard impact to super meter is interesting.  As an old SC2 player that liked having GIs being really key, I don't know if I fully approve, but it's better than SC4, where the window on GI was so small that it was useless.  And getting just a guaranteed launcher after a guard break is so much better than stupid critical finish.  I also like the fast step, it sets up more Tekken like movement, which is nice.  I don't have an opinion on just guard yet, since the online's not good enough to really let you do it.

If anyone wants to play, hit me up on PSN - PSUJer.

TTT2 is so good, got to play it a whole bunch at Winter Brawl and I'm even more hype for it now than I was before.  I can't wait.  I'm glad they moved the release up to September.  Hopefully the online play will be at least as good as SC5's, and they won't waste a bunch of time on scenario campaign mode type bullshit.

Two months til Evo, get hype!
